Pros: The course plays around the edges of a well groomed soccer park. The park was free of any trash or vandalism, and the grass was mowed short and in nice shape. The holes used the available trees to make some reasonably technical lines in a mostly open park. The signage was good, and made the course easy to follow. The tees are all on sidewalk, so the surface is fine to throw from.
Cons: The course is very repetitive. A RHBH hyzer suffices for every hole, and almost all are in the 320-380' range. I threw the same hyzer shot every hole, it just doesn't offer any interesting challenges. On top of that, the safety issues here are quite bad. Every shot plays over or along at least one soccer field. Most also play over or through pavilions, horseshoe pits and sidewalks. Three of the holes bring parking lots into play. There just isn't enough room in this park for a safe design, conflicts are unavoidable and the course is unplayable with soccer fields in use.
Other Thoughts: This course is too long for beginners, most of the holes are in the range that many players won't be able to get close enough for a 2 but there aren't enough obstacles that most players can't get an easy 3. More experienced players won't find any variety. The conflicts and safety issues here make a merely poor course into one I would not recommend stopping at.
